Memorial seats

We can allocate existing benches in the following parks as memorial seats:

How much does it cost?

Seat allocation is £250. This includes maintenance of the seat for 10 years and a standard 6”x2” plaque. Additional plaques for the same seat are £80 each. Maintenance of the plaque, such as polishing, is your responsibility. Please note that seats remain the property of the council and will be maintained or replaced by us as appropriate. 

At the end of 10 years it may be possible to renew the memorial.

Memorial trees

We can plant trees on land we own to mark a significant event or as a memorial. You can ask for a particular tree or location and we will do our best to accommodate you. If the location is not suitable, we will suggest an alternative.

You are allowed to place a plaque no bigger than 6”x4” at the base of the tree. You are responsible for supplying and maintaining the plaque.

Unfortunately we cannot replace a tree that dies or is vandalised so badly that it cannot survive.

November to March is the preferred time for tree planting.

How much does it cost?

£250 per tree, which includes the purchase of the tree and ongoing maintenance. Please note that the tree remains the property of the council.
